Default I have never seen a seller openly admit to shilling like this! lmfao

Do you think the seller meant to post the questions and answers in the bottom of this auction

2004 World Series Game Ball Red Sox Whole Team Ball 84 of 150 | eBay


With that being said seller to block: torres0991

Questions and answers about this item
Q: hi - a few questions. 1) what's the condition of the ball and autographs. (any spotting on the ball, smudges, etc)? 2) does it come with a Steiner certificate? 3) do you have a list of the signers? thanks!
A: Ball is in mint condition no spotting or any thing done have the certificate but I have the hologram # MR709048 and don't have the list of names but it was the whole team of the Red Sox from 2004

Q: does this ball come with a coa from steiner? a see the bag but am wondering if it comes with the coa card
A: I don't have the card for this one but I do have the halogram sticker with the # on it if u want to look it up with them.

Q: It's too bad your shill bidding this, cause now I'm backing out. I would have been in it for the long run.
A: I know it's kind of wrong what I'm doing but I'm selling this stuff to keep my dad alive so I can't let it go for cheap.

Shilling - Driving the price of an item up with phony bids.

Basically he is driving his own price up with another account.

He ended it just before I hit BUY IT NOW!!

I think this is the first time I've ever seen someone admit it. That is so ridiculous. Doe this rate as better or worse than people who admit to pack searching?

Worse, at least pack searchers have to put themselves out there.

Yet if you report it to ebay they will state that there is not enough evidence to say that the person is shilling his own auctions
